Did You Know?

Goofs

Near the opening of the film, the pilot and his co-pilot are looking downward through binoculars at the animals below. The next shot shows their "view through the binoculars", but the shots of wild animals are all photographed horizontally, by a photographer on the ground. Moments later, as the plane tries to land, we see a view through their cockpit window, showing the ground at a steep angle (appropriate for looking downward from a plane). See more »

Usual White Hollywood
30 August 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews



Show 203 of the popular Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's typical of many 40's Hollywood movies in which the white characters play God to the native Africans. Of course, the Africans with lines are played by white actors in dark makeup (sometimes in blackface.) It gets its proper roasting in MST3K.
